Tuesday Triptych: Going Up In Smoke

Bovist TriptychMaking the most of the last rays of sun last October, I went mushrooming with friends who were looking for chanterelles. We didn’t find a single one, but I’d brought my camera and was amazed at the variety of beautiful, colourful and interesting mushrooms.

I’d never heard of nor seen bovista negrescens. These little puffballs grow in little tight groups, and when you accidentally (or not so accidentally as seen in above pics) step on them, they spit out their spores in a cloud of smoke.
